Donetsk, Dec 10 – DAN. Ukraine has been deliberately withholding information on 94 captive DPR supporters for a year and a half, the Republic's Ombudswoman Daria Morozova said.

"It has been a year and a half that Ukraine hinders the exchange of information on the status of missing persons," she said.

The DPR has not received so fat any confirmations on 94 persons it believes are held in Ukraine, Morozova said.

Donetsk has developed a package of steps to carry out a prisoner exchange as soon as possible, the Republic's Ombudswoman said earlier on Friday.

At the December 8 meeting of the Contact Group, Ukraine wriggled out of its commitment to carry out the legal clearance of liberated detainees.

During the  2019-2020 POW exchanges DPR received 71 people. The sides agreed to carry out the legal clearance of the released persons. Kiev has not delivered on its commitment. *ot
